I want to let my property through the Council
Hastings Borough Council operates a Social Lettings Agency called Letstart Letting. The aim of Letstart is to provide quality, affordable rented accommodation to local people.
As a landlord you can let your property through Letstart. As well as being an ethical way to let your property, there are loads of benefits for landlords, such as a guaranteed leasing fee for the duration of the 3 year lease even if the property is empty. There are no hidden costs or fees either.
If you are interested in leasing your property through Letstart or want to know more, visit the Letstart website.
